Carahsoft Helps Bolster Mid-Atlantic State's Cybersecurity Protection
As the world has shifted to hybrid and remote work environments, cyberthreats are ever present. Along with this shift comes the need to move away from legacy systems and toward modern cybersecurity solutions.
Why is it important to modernize your cybersecurity solutions?
Cybersecurity is one of the most important topics for all agencies and organizations nationwide as cyberattacks won’t seem to stop anytime soon. Mckinsey & Company reports that in 2021, there were more than 850,000 cybercrime complaints. According to the 2022 Cybersecurity Study published by NASCIO, citizens expect ease of use when it comes to license renewals and more on government sites, while expecting data to remain secure in the process. It is vital that your data be protected for the sake of your agency and for your stakeholders.
In this case study, learn how one of our participating state government agencies decided to get ahead of the curve and ramp up their security measures with the help of OMNIA Partners’ industry expert supplier partner, Carahsoft, and Crowdstrike as the ultimate solution.
This mid-Atlantic state government agency worked with Carahsoft’s trusted reseller to find a solution that best fit their modern cybersecurity needs. The challenge this state faced was that across their local agencies, there were inconsistent cybersecurity solutions deployed. This was largely due to a lack of cybersecurity funding across these local agencies toward legacy modernization. Knowing this, the state agency procured a solution for these local government agencies, which they tested, deployed and found to streamline their level of cybersecurity protection.
The solution was acquiring an advanced endpoint threat protection service for all statewide IT operations. Crowdstrike was selected as the best fit and met requirements such as zero-day attack prevention, zero trust, proactive and monitored malware detection, and persistent threat recognition and eradication.
Participating agencies with OMNIA Partners have a dedicated resource available to them to help navigate a solution that is a best fit, while saving them time and money. With the help of OMNIA Partners’ trusted resources, the state agency was able to procure their cybersecurity solutions in a timely manner and with ease of use due to the nature of the compliant cooperative contract with Carahsoft.
